  • Mt Siguniang (Four Sisters Mountain)

    The Four Sisters Mountain (also known as Siguniang Shan) Scenic Area is situated in Xiaojin County of A’ba Prefecture in Sichuan Province of China. The area is reputed to be the “Queen of Mountains in Sichuan” and “The Oriental Alps” because it offers beautiful landscape and exquisite scenery. The Four Sisters Mountain Scenic Area consists of Mt Siguniang, Mt Balang, and 3 main valleys – Haizi Gou, Changping Gou, Shuangqiao Gou.

    Mt Siguniang is rise between Haizi Gou and Changping Gou. Mt Siguniang encompasses four peaks: DaFeng (Big Peak or 1st peak), ErFeng (2nd peak), SanFeng (3rd peak), and Yaomei Feng (4th peak). The highest peak is Yaomei Feng (幺妹峰); literally: "peak of the youngest sister"), also known as the "Queen of Sichuan's peaks" (蜀山皇后), standing at 6250 meters. It is also the second highest mountain in Sichuan Province. The first ascent was in 1981 by a Japanese team via the east ridge. Very few people attempt to climb this and very few of them succeed after that. The first ascent of the southwest ridge was made in 2008 by Chad Kellogg and Dylan Johnson. Thereafter a few attempts were made by local Chinese mountaineers, only a few successfully scaled to the top.

    The other three lower peaks are regular mountaineering destinations through all seasons. Mt Siguniang DaFeng (四姑娘山大峰 or 大姑娘山; literally: "peak of the oldest sister", 5038 m) is normally considered as a pure trekking peak while ErFeng (四姑娘山二峰 or 二姑娘山; literally: "peak of the second sister", 5276 m) and SanFeng (四姑娘山三峰 or 三姑娘山; literally: "peak of the third sister", 5355 m) are more challenging as it involves basic climbing technique.

    About The Climb

    We will start our trek from Rilong, hike from the entrance of Haizi Gou. We will trek to the base camp of 2nd Peak, spend one day to acclimatize, then make a summit attempt. 2nd Peak of Mt Siguniang is more challenging than 1st Peak with steeper rock formation nearer to the top. The climb is also more strenuous as the route distance is longer and higher in elevation than the 1st Peak.
